Five minutes from Mykonos town, Santa Marina sits on a private and revitalized beach, offering panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, Ornos Bay and nearby islands. The resort has 100 guest rooms and suites, including some with a private pool, all with a private balcony and sea views. Villas sit atop the hillside amid gardens where travelers may enjoy butler service.

Krontira's interpretation of the resort blends the cosmopolitan style of Mykonos with the island's warmth, complete with technology and luxury amenities. The resort's newly designed rooms and suites use natural materials in their designs, such as teak wood and linen fabrics alongside panoramic sea views.

The redesign of the public spaces of Santa Marina reflects a chic natural decor and muted tones that are inspired by its coastal environment and complements the white interiors of the resort. Indigenous Cycladic design accents blend throughout the resort, from the lobby to the private villas.

Unveiled last year, the new seafront BAYVIEW Beach Restaurant & Bar is a venue in Mykonos where guests can enjoy fine dining with Mediterranean-fusion cuisine, inspired by local seafood and Japanese influences, while enjoying sea views from the restaurant's honeyed wood terrace.

The resort also has the Lotus Spa, three swimming pools, a Children's Club, sporting facilities and water recreational activities.
